This is Kuli.  Is it trees? Stars? Flowers? This waxed cotton chitenge fabric was purchased in a local market in Zambia.  Kitenge or Chitenge is worn in West, East and Central Africa, similar to a sarong.  Zambia, in Central Africa, more specifically, the village of Chipembi hold a place dear to my heart.  My friends in Chipembi are trailblazers in child education for girls and education advocacy.  To purchase a Kitenge item is to support the continued efforts of these important initiative. 100% Cotton.

Kuli means “Dog” in Tonga.

Our bowties slide over the collar, so you can wear it on your good side, plus you’ll barely even know it’s there!  Perfect for a photo op, or ya know, a Tuesday, a Dog Shop bow tie brings out the best in everyone.  Approximate bowtie measurements are 3.25 inches tall, 4.5 inches wide.  All Dog Shop bowties are handcrafted in Canada with love and attention to detail.
